Reflection: Backwards Planning Intro: Convert Customary Measurement - Section 4: Closure


This lesson went well, but the students didn't remember nearly as much as I thought that they would have from fourth grade. I meant for this lesson to be a quick review about customary measurement, but then I decided to also review more specifically liquid measurement in this lesson too. If I had it to do over again, I would solely devote this day to only discussing liquid measurement, and then each subsequent day on weight and length, also reviewing the previous days' objectives.
